    need Sedona ride suggestions

    Hi Guys, I'm on vacation in Sedona at the end of Sept. and was wondering about a few things.
    I'm with the wife so I'll likely only have one day to ride, which trail to ride?
    I've been riding for 20 years so I'm not wet behind the ears.I consider myself to be strong XC, technically proficient.
    I also would like some trails that have some decent photo op's, I'm an amateur photographer.
    Are there any local groups I can hook up with for group ride instead of going solo?
    Which shop to rent a bike from, I'd like a competent one that has decent FS 29er's.
    Any other insight is greatly appreciated
    Eric S

    Hi Line and Slim shady are two of my favorites but the sweet descent on Hi Line is over the majority of riders abilities. Hang Over is another one. I think all of the shops have good rentals.

    Ditto. Those trails will give the best ride and view combos for sure. Absolute bikes has a nice rental fleet

    OP, you can rent a Pivot 429 at Absolute but you might want to reserve it a week or two in advance. Fat Tire has a Ripley as well. Not sure about the 29r offerings at Bike-n-Bean or OTE.

    Trails: +1 on Highline, many, many other good trails too
    Insight: 1 day in Sedona is not enough

    just find a group of horsebackriders and you can follow them to the best trails. make sure you bring an airhorn so you can alert them to your presence

    Thanks for the reply guys, are there any group rides usually scheduled in the area on a Saturday or Sunday?
    I don't know about doing desert riding solo, I'm from the east coast and am not familiar with trail conditions.
    I could book a guide from Absolute bikes but I'd rather just do a group ride.

    Thanks
    Eric S
